San Diego – May 25th, 1997
At Downtown San Diego, former Army Special Forces soldier Sean Nolan and his wife, Emily, were heading to their car from a restaurant. Emily was 7 months pregnant with their first child.
"I'm glad you took me to the right place, Sean." Emily said.
"The food was great, like I told you, baby." Nolan said to his wife as he stroked her long brunette hair.
"Thanks for bringing me there, honey." Emily said to her husband as he put her left hand on his right shoulder.
"Glad you enjoy it, Emily." Nolan said to her as they kissed passionately in the lips for a few moments.
"Well, we should head home. I will need to seat on my recliner so my back could rest." Emily said as she was feeling slight contractions and needed to rest at home.
Nolan looks at his beautiful, pregnant wife longingly. Then he said to her, "We should get going."
Nolan and Emily head to their Ford Taurus car. Emily said to Nolan, "We should work on giving our daughter's name, Sean."
"Yes, we should do that, sweetheart. We'll talk about it when we get home." Nolan said to Emily as they reached their car.
"Maybe we will tomorrow." Emily said as Nolan opened the passenger side door.
"That would be a good idea, actually." Nolan replied as Emily was entering the car.
As Nolan got his pregnant wife in the car, the ground then trembled. Nolan felt it and stood still.
Emily felt the tremor as well as she seat on the passenger seat. "What is that? It's that a earthquake?" Emily asked with concern.
Nolan listened to the tremor. Then he said to her, "No...it's something on the surface. It's some kind of impact tremor and something very powerful."
Nolan gave his car keys to Emily. "Start the car and stay here. I'm gonna find out." Nolan said to Emily as he quickly got out of the car. As his wife started the car, Nolan rushed into the nearby intersection. He saw cars driving away erratically and hitting each other. Then he heard loud screams. He spotted people running away in a panic. When he peaked in from the corner of the building, he sees something that shocked him. A large, tall animal. A predator. Then Nolan heard the sound of a loud roar. To his ultimate surprise and shock, he recognized the creature. A dinosaur? A Tyrannosaurs Rex? How the hell is that possible? They were supposed to be extinct. Nolan thought in shock. As he looked at the T-Rex for a few moments, rampaging the streets, Nolan realized that he had to get his wife out of there. He quickly spirits towards the car.
"What's wrong? What is that?" Emily asked as she saw her husband quickly got into their car.
"We got to go now!" Nolan stated in a desperate tone without explaining to a reason to his wife as he quickly got to their car. Putting the gear in reverse, he moved out of the parking spot fast.
Emily sees people frantically running at their street and she asked worriedly, "What's going on here?"
Nolan looks at the rear view mirror and sees the T-Rex. "That!" Nolan said to his wife while pointing to the T-Rex behind their car.
Emily turned her head to the back of the car again and saw the tall carnivore. "Oh my god!" Emily said in total shock as she saw the T-Rex at the intersection and turned towards them. "Sean, it's coming towards us!"
Nolan then put the gear in drive and accelerated out of it. But the T-Rex followed it and let out a thunderous roar.
"Come on!" Emily yelled out in desperation after hearing the loud roar.
Nolan drove to try to get away from the T-Rex, but he finds out that the panicking crowd was blocking them. The T-Rex was coming in to the car and Nolan sees that it's about to get trampled.
"Get down!" yelled Nolan as he got his wife down to the side of the car.
The T-Rex stomped on the car on the passenger side where Emily was on. The strong, heavy foot crushed the car with it's enormous weight. Then the T-Rex got off Nolan's car. The stomped car was badly crushed and damaged on it's passenger side. The top of the driver's side was also crushed in. The T-Rex went out of sight, but his trembling footsteps can be felt.
Nolan came around and sees his left leg is pinned by the crushed steering wheel. His forehead was bleeding from a gash. He looked around and sees the T-Rex was not near. "Emily." Nolan called out to her name, but didn't get a reply. He turned to where Emily is. What he saw horrified him. His wife was impaled in the neck by the sharp object from the room of the car when the T-Rex trampled the vehicle.
"Emily! EMILY!" yelled Nolan.
But Emily was unresponsive. Nolan checked her pulse on both her neck & wrist and didn't find any. Nolan came out a terrifying realization. His beloved wife Emily is dead.
"Oh, god...no..." Nolan said while he began to sob. "Emily, Emily! Oh, no, no. Oh, Jesus Christ!" Nolan cradled Emily's head. Then he broke down in tears and weep over losing the love of his life.
May 26th, 1997
Nolan was in the ICU, being treated for his injuries. His left leg is in a brace after he underwent surgery to repair his broken leg. He also had bandages around his forehead. He was in the hospital gown and was resting on the hospital bed.
Nolan had been thinking about Emily and their unborn daughter. He felt so sad over losing his wife and unborn child. He was also wanted answers on why there was a dinosaur in San Diego. Nolan then reached for the remote on his right hand, put it on his left hand and turned on the TV to check out the news. The newsman Bernard Shaw said on the news while the deck of a cargo ship is seen lived on the camera.
"There's the first-rate shot of the ship's deck and cargo hold that for the moment, contains the animal itself, presumably with the infant alongside. By our calculations, they should be nearing the halfway point to this trip. Jim, can you still hear me there?"
Jim Sovin, the new captain of the S.S. Venture, said on air, "Yes, I can, Bernard. We're in fact halfway to the island. It is 206 nautical miles from our present location. The ship is moving about 20 knots, which will put it in at about 11:30 AM, Eastern Time. One of the Navy's primary concern has been safety. If we take a look at the ever-growing around the ship, they're taking no chances of a repeat of the San Diego incident."
Nolan looks at the screen with glare as he wanted to know more about the dinosaurs that came into San Diego. Then Bernard Shaw said on the news, "Okay, we going to take a moment to run the tape of our interview earlier today with John Hammond. He's the former head of InGen Bioengineering, the man who now spearheading this movement.
Nolan sees the camera screen switched to John Hammond, the man in the white beard wearing a black suit who didn't look like he was in good shape.
"It is absolutely imperative that we work with the Costa Rican Department of Biological Preserves to establish a set of rules for the preservation and isolation of that island. These creatures require our absence to survive, not our help. And if we could only step aside and trust in nature, life will find a way." Hammond said in the interview.
After seeing Hammond's interview, Nolan realized that InGen knew about the dinosaurs existence before the incident. That rose his suspicions more as he continued to watch the news.
The news shift to Bernard Shaw as he said,"Shortly after the interview with Hammond, we discovered that Dr. Ian Malcolm, a mathematician and chaos theory specialist, previously revealed about the similar incident to Isla Nublar which is 80 miles away from Isla Sorna four years ago, but was discredited by InGen's then CEO Peter Ludlow, who was killed in the ship's cargo hold by both the animal and it's infant, who mauled Ludlow to death. Though unconfirmed by InGen, it is now believed that Ludlow actually covered-up the incident in Isla Nublar four years ago and publicly humiliated Ian Malcolm by committing perjury to the press. We have no recent comments from Dr. Malcolm, but he previously mentioned that InGen cloned dinosaurs from the DNA cells found in a bug inside an amber and made Isla Nublar into a now failed theme park called Jurassic Park, but it went severely haywire and the cloned dinosaurs ran amok on the island, killing some people there."
After watching the news of InGen were responsible for cloning the dinosaurs and a similar incident in Isla Nublar was covered up by that company, the anger inside him boiled. He was angry that InGen cloned those dinosaurs and that there was an incident in Isla Nublar before the San Diego incident, which was kept secret. Nolan felt that because of InGen, the T-Rex killed his wife.
He reached for the phone with his left hand and grabbed the phone. Then he lifted the headset and dialed the number. Nolan puts the phone in his left ear and puts the TV on mute as the dial tone on the phone rang.
"Hello." said the voice on the phone.
After a moment, Nolan finally said, "Mike, it's Sean."
At the bar, Mike Torres, former Special Forces soldier and Nolan's friend, was in the bar, carrying his cellular telephone. He was at the bar table as he was watching the news. "Sean, buddy. Hey, have you been watching the news?"
"Yes, I have been." Nolan said seriously. Then he asked quietly, but sternly, "You know about what happened?"
"Man, I'm so sorry about your wife. This shit can't happen again." Torres said, trying to offer his condolences and views about the incident.
Nolan felt in the agreement to what Torres told him, "No, it can't. Listen, Mike. I need your help."
"Hey, anything. Whatcha need?" Torres asked. He knew Nolan would call him if he needed any favors.
Nolan than stick to the reason why he called as he said, "I'm planning to sue InGen for millions of dollars. Once I get the settlement money, we're going to form an anti-dinosaur group to prevent something like this from happening again."
After hearing what Nolan said, Torres was silent at the moment. Then he said to his friend, "Sounds like a good plan, Sean. Once your wife's funeral is over, we'll get started. And again...I'm sorry."
Nolan was somewhat pleased that Torres is willing to help him out. Then he said to Torres, "Thank you, Mike. We'll talk more after Emily's funeral."
"Sure, man." Torres said to him.
"Alright, bye." Nolan said to Torres as he slowly put the hospital phone on the hook. As he went back to the news, the newsman revealed the names of the victims killed in the incident. Emily's name and picture came up.
I will avenge you, Emily. Your death will not go unpunished. Know that I will not allow any more incidents like this happened again. I will get those responsible for bringing these things to life and I will make them pay. Nolan thought as he watched the image of his beautiful late wife on the screen. He was determined to make InGen and anyone else involve pay their dues for his wife's death and he was setting a plan in motion.
Chapter 1: Arrival
Wisconsin – December 26, 2015
18 years later
At a two story, yellow suburban house, Karen Mitchell was loading luggage in her Nissan minivan parked in the driveway. There was snow on the ground, on the roof of the house and the trees.
After she put another luggage in the van, Karen turned around. "Boys, let's do this!" Karen yelled out for her two sons Zach and Gray after she put in the luggage in the van.
At Gray's bedroom, he was checking out the slides of the dinosaurs in his Viewmaster. The room was full of toy dinosaurs and various posters. Then a knock of door came.
"Gray." Karen said through the door. Then she opened it and see her youngest son occupied by the Viewmaster.
"Honey, what're you doing? What is this here?" Karen said as she gently takes the Viewmaster away from Gray and puts on on his desk. "Let's go. Come on, honey. Your flight's in two hours." As she said that, Karen went to his bag that is on his bed.
Gray turned his chair to face his mother, who was counting his things on his bag "Dane County Airport is 36 minutes away, 60 with traffic." Gray said.
Karen was packing up Gray's things in his bag as she asked, "How many minutes to get your little butt in the van?"
Both of them smiled at each other. Then Gray got up from his chair as Karen carried his bag. "How many of those?" Karen said as she and Gray walked together. Then she asked her youngest son, "Feed the monster under the bed?"
"Yes." Gray said as Karen closed the door to his room.
Gray went outside with his gray jacket on and walked into the snow, passing by his older brother Zach and his girlfriend.
"Call me everyday and text me pics so I don't forget what you look like." Zach's blonde girlfriend said as Karen walked by them and Gray came into the van.
"I'm only be gone for a week." Zach said to his girlfriend.
"Zach." Scott Mitchell, Zach and Gray's father, who is in the driver's seat on the van, said. He sounded impatient and amused in the same time. "You're not going off to war here. Please, come on."
After hearing his father, Zach and his girlfriend looked at each other in the eye.
"I..." Zach was trying to figure out what to say for the moment, but couldn't find the right words.
"I love you." His girlfriend replied.
"...will see you later." Zach finished. His girlfriend was obviously amused of Zach's inability to say "I love you".
"Vamanos." Scott said in Spanish, trying him to hurry up.
"Bye. Okay." Zach said to his girlfriend as he was walked by her to get to the van.
"Bye." The girlfriend said to Zach.
Zach was heading to the van as Scott started the vehicle. "Coming, buddy?" Karen asked as Zach was coming to the van. Zach's girlfriend waved at him as he got into the back passenger seat. Scott and Karen look at their sons at the back seat, mainly to the sullen Zach.
"I know it hurts, sweetheart." Karen said to Zach in a sympathetic tone.
"Are you gonna okay?" Scott asked, teasing his oldest son. Zach ignored his parents' remarks by putting on his headphones. Gray smiled while in the back driver's side seat.
Dane County Airport, Madison, Wisconsin
At Dane County Airport, the Mitchell family are in the airport. A Christmas song was played in the airport in the background.
"Everything right there?" Karen asked Gray.
"I'm so jealous. You're gonna have so much fun. I love you." Karen said to her youngest son.
"I love you too." Gray replied. Then he and Karen embraced. Karen closed her eyes to savor the last hug before Gray and Zach get on the plane. While that was happening, Gray looks at his father. Scott let out a tiny smile, but he seemed uncomfortable.
"Okay. Right." Karen said as she and Gray finally finished their hug. Then she turned to Zach and again to Gray.
"All right. Umm... Let's give these to your brother, okay?" Karen said as she gently takes the tickets from Gray to hand them to Zach.
"Can you hold these, please?" Karen asked Zach to take the tickets, but he wasn't paying attention because he had a hood on and the music on his headphones.
"Zach!" Scott called out to his oldest son.
"Can you hold these?" Karen asked again. But Zach wasn't listening until Karen finally got his attention. "Honey, I need you to take care of these."
Zach noticed the tickets and reluctantly takes them from his mother."Yeah." Zach replied in a indifferent tone.
"Hey." Scott called out to his oldest son as Zach looks at his father.
"Alright." Karen said.
"Listen to your mother." Scott said to Zach.
As Scott told Zach that, Karen quickly said to him, "Take care of your brother, answer your phone. I'm serious. It's the green button. When you see my name, push it. Okay?"
"And remember if something chases you..." Karen paused for a moment. Then she said in a low, dramatic tone, "...run."
Gray smiled at his mother's joke.
"Come on." Karen said apologetically, trying to get them to see it was just a joke to them.
Zach half-smiled and said, "Yeah, very funny." Then he said to his younger brother, "Okay, let's go. Come on." He then ushered Gray to come along as they headed for the plane.
"Bye, guys." Karen said to her son.
"Bye." Zach said as he waved to his mother.
"I miss you already." Karen admitted to her sons.
"Yep." Zach replied with mixed reactions as he and Gray headed to the airport check-in.
As their children were heading to the check in, Scott then remarked to Karen, "So much for our last family breakfast."
"Why do you have to say things like that?" Karen asked bluntly, annoyed by her soon-to-be ex-husband's remarks. As that happened, Gray waved goodbye while he and Zach went through the gate to board.
"Did you call your sister?" Scott asked, referring to Karen's sister, Claire Dearing. Claire works at Jurassic World as an operations manager.
"Straight to voicemail." Karen replied unhappily, since her sister is always busy running the park.
"They'll be fine. She handles twenty-thousand people a day. She can handle two more." Scott said.
Pier at Costa Rica
After landing at Juan Santamaria Airport in San Jose, Costa Rica, Zach and Grey had later went to the dock that lands to a Isla Nublar ferry. There were hundreds of people boarding the ferry. The boarding ramps to the ferry had Jurassic World logos on them.
"How big is the island?" Gray asked.
"Big." Zach replied in an uninterested tone.
"But how many pounds?" Gray asked.
Annoyed with his brother's question, Zach only replied, "That doesn't make sense." As he said that, the brothers went on board the ferry.
As Zach and Grey were boarding the ferry, a man in his upper 40s name Smith was coming to the ramp leading to the the ferry, along with three other guys with him.
Isla Nublar ferry – Pacific Ocean
At the ferry in the Pacific Ocean, Zach and Gray were standing at the rail at the top of the ship. "When they first opened, they had eight species. Now they fourteen herbivores and six carnivores. That's like fifty tons of food." Gray said to Zach as he remembers what he knows about the history of Isla Nublar, Jurassic Park and Jurassic World.
Zach wasn't paying attention to his younger brother as he was smiling at some girl below the ferry.
Inside the ferry, Smith and his three guys are sitting at the booth, eating some snacks and drinking some water from bottles. Then Smith looked at his watch and said to the guys, "It's time to call Cullen." He then dialed a number.
"Hello?" A woman name Heather Cullen answered.
"Hey, honey. We're inside the ferry and coming up to the island." Smith said on the phone, keeping appearances as a man talking to his wife to avoid any suspicion from passengers and such.
"Good. Make sure you keep an eye on Main Street. Things will become hell when the operation commences." Cullen said.
"Good to know. Say, sweetheart. How are the gifts the kids like?" Smith asking Cullen about their gear.
"The weapons and gear will be delivered to you soon when the supply ship arrives, Smith." Cullen replied to Smith on the phone.
"Got it. I'll call you soon, honey." Smith said, secretly letting Cullen know to call him when the operation is about to begin.
"Alright. Be ready as soon as we call you." Cullen said as she hung up.
After hearing that Cullen hung up, he pressed the end button on his phone and then he went back to his three guys on the booth as Isla Nublar was in sight.
Somewhere in the Pacific Ocean, a container ship, MV Dust Storm, is anchored. Inside the bridge, a man name Leonid Chernov is holding the captain of the ship hostage, as well as the executive officer and the helmsman of the ship.
"We'll be arriving at the dock within the hour." The captain of the ship said on the radio.
"Copy that, Dust Storm." The person on the other end of the radio replied.
After Chernov puts the radio down, the captain of the ship said in a pleading tone. "You got what you wanted. Now, please, let us go."
Chernov said to the captain in his Russian accent, "Sorry, can't do that." Then he went on the radio. "Kill them all."
With that, Chernov fired his pistol and shot the captain in the head. Then the henchmen aboard killed the rest of the crew in the lower decks while Chernov killed the executive officer and the helmsman on the ship at the bridge.
"This is Witter, all clear." Witter, the British henchman, said to Chernov on the radio.
"Hasselbach here, all clear." Hasselbach said on the radio.
Chernov smiled in satisfaction and said on the radio, "Very good. Get changed. Be ready to blend in when we arrive."
"Copy." Hasselbach said on the radio.
"Roger that." Witter acknowledged on the radio.
Upon hearing their end of operation is done, Chernov dialed a number on his cell phone.
After a ring on his phone, Torres answered, "Yeah."
"The ship's cleared." Chernov said on the phone.
"Good." Torres replied in acknowledgment.
"We will be on the island in 1 to 2 hours." Chernov said to Torres.
After hearing how long The Dust Storm will be arriving, Torres said in a serious tone, "You must get over here to your destination time. Nolan is waiting for everyone to get in position."
"Look, Torres. I got that job done there fast as possible." Chernov said in a unhappily with his thick Russian accent. He knows that Nolan wants everything in their operation on schedule.
"Yes, I know, Chernov. Sean Nolan is never the most patient man." Torres said to the Russian henchman. He knows that Nolan is not a patient man when it comes to their operations. Then Torres said to Chernov, "Anyway, get the gear over to the rest of our men in Main Street. You know what to do."
"Da, sir." Chernov said in Russian as he hung up the phone. Then he saw Witter and two men came up on the bridge. "Alright, get this ship moving. All ahead, full."
"On it." Witter replied as Chernov left the bridge. When Chernov went out of sight, Witter and the men on the bridge were getting the ship ready to move. Asshole Russian. Witter thought to himself about Chernov as he control the helm of the ship.
The Dust Storm's anchor rose and the ship's engine started. The ship began to move, heading for Isla Nublar.
Chapter 2: Day's Work
At the Ferry Landing, Zach and Grey had already disembark the ship as well as many other passengers. As they walked in the East Dock, the voice of the announcer was heard in the P.A. system, "Welcome to Isla Nublar, home of Jurassic World. We hope you have a safe and enjoyable stay with us."
As the announcement continued in different languages, the boys stopped and see a black-haired woman they don't recognize, holding a sign with their names on it. The woman was Zara Young, Claire's personal assistant.
"Where's Aunt Claire?" Gray asked, anxious to see his aunt.
Zach didn't reply as he looked sullen. As he and Gray went over to Zara, Smith and the three henchmen with him headed towards for the monorail station.
"Chernov will be telling us where our gear will be hidden when he and the others get on this island." Smith said to him.
"Yes, sir. The supply ship is said to arrive within a hour." One of the men said to him.
"Just as planned." Smith said as he and the others went up the stairs to the monorail station.
At the train, Zach and Gray seat next to each other in the lead car. Zach, who sat on the window side, looked bored and has his headphones on while holding his arms together. The enthusiastic Grey nunges his older brother with his elbow, but gets no response from him. The watchful Zara, with her shades removed, was sitting behind them while holding a book. A monorail announcer than spoke in the intercom.
"Okay, those of you in the front of the train should be able to see our main gate, built from the gate of the original park, over twenty years ago."
Upon hearing that, Gray ran towards the front end of the front car as he and the others see the Jurassic World main gate. The gate greatly resembles the old Jurassic Park gate and it's completed with lit torches. The only difference is that it reads “JURASSIC WORLD” with blue letters. The gate opened as the train went through the gate.
At one of the other cars, Smith and the three men with him see that they passed by the Jurassic World gate that used to be Jurassic Park gate. Smith and his goons looked at each other as they wait to arrive in Main Street.
Monorail Station Hub
At the monorail station, the gleeful Gray excitedly ran towards the hub of the monorail station as the park announcer said, "Please obey all park rules. Proper attire, including shoes and shirts, must be worn at all times." As that was happening, Gray was awed by all that he saw at the monorail station. Zach and Zara follow in a little ways behind. Zara looked at her wristwatch.
"Your aunt arranged to meet you at 1 o'clock." Zara said to Zach. Seeing far ahead Gray is, she asked Zach in an annoyed tone, "Can he slow down?"
"Nope." Zach replied in a sullen, disinterested tone.
Gray was already in the nearby escalator and gestured Zach and Zara. "Come on." Gray said excitedly.
As Zach and Zara followed the overly excited Gray on the escalator, Smith and his three guys entered the hub. Smith shook his head when he sees how excited Gray was in the escalator. He scoffs and said to himself, "Kids..."
The man next to Smith said to him, "I think once we get to Main Street, we should call either Cullen or Torres." One of the men said to Smith.
"Yeah, we should. Nolan wants us in position once the operation starts. How is our timetable?" Smith replied in agreement. He knew that Nolan wants things done on the schedule.
The henchman checked his wristwatch and replied, "So far, we're on schedule."
Smith and the men went on the esculator as he said to the henchman talking to him, "Good. Hopefully, Chernov and the others will gives us our gear at our rendezvous point before we go to a showing."
At a lavish-looking hotel room, Zara opened the door. The boys soon entered the room.
"Your aunt's got you VIP access. So you can get all the rides without waiting in line." Zara stated to them.
After putting his backpack on the floor, Gray was futzing with the big screen TV as he impatiently said, "Let's go."
Zach flops down on the bed while looking at his iPhone. "Dude, she said we had to wait." Zach said to his younger brother.
"I don't wanna wait anymore." Gray replied as he ran towards the balcony. He opens the sliding doors. Gray goes to the balcony and sees the view of Jurassic World, including the Mosasaur Lagoon stands the Monorail, The Innovation Center and other buildings in Main Street.
At the elevator, park operation manager Claire Dearing, Zach and Gray's aunt, was talking to herself to memorize the people that she was going to meet with.
"Hal Osterly, vice-president...Jim Drucker, bad hair...Erica Brand, deserves better. Hal, Jim, Erica. Hal, Jim, Erica. And I am Claire." As Claire memorized the names, she checked her wristwatch and the elevator dinged. "Three minutes late." Claire said to herself as she sighed.
The elevator doors opened and Claire said, "Welcome to Jurassic World."
Hammond Creation Lab
At the Hammond Creation Lab in the Innovation Lab, scientists are hard at work. Visitors watch their through the convex windows. They were dinosaur eggs in heat lamps and computers with DNA helix on their screens.
Claire was leading potential sponsors, Harold "Hal" Osterly, vice-president of Verizon, and two Verizon representatives, Jim Drucker and Erica Brand, to the laboratory through the corridor where visitors watch scientists' work in the lab. "While year over year, revenue continues to climb, operating costs are higher than ever. Our shareholders have been patient, but let's be honest, no one's impressed with the dinosaurs anymore. Twenty years ago, de-extinction was right up there with magic. These days, kids look at the Stegosaurs like an elephant from a city zoo. That doesn't mean our asset development has fallen behind. Our DNA excavators discover new species every year." As she said that, Claire led the potential investors to the part of the lab that is off-limits to visitors. DNA "But consumers want them bigger. Louder. More teeth."
Osterly, Drucker and Brand exchanged looks as they listened to Claire. She continued, "The good news? Our advances in gene splicing have opened up a whole new frontier. We've learned more from genetics in the past decade than a century of digging up bones." As she said that, Claire lead the representatives over to the computer screens. She turned to face them. "So, when you say you want to sponsor an attraction, what do you have in mind?" Claire asked.
"We wanna be thrilled." Osterly replied.
"Don't we all?" Claire replied. She slides her right finger on one of the computer screens and a DNA double helix reacts. Claire said as she stepped forward proudly, "The Indominus Rex, our first genetically modified hybrid."
Drucker look rather dubious about it. He asked, "How did you get two different kinds of dinosaurs to..." Drucker trailed off, trying to figure out the right sentence. With some awkward hand gestures, Drucker added, "You know..."
As Drucker trailed off, lead geneticist Dr. Henry Wu came over to the group with a smile on his face. Wu said to the investors, "Oh, Indominus was bred. She was designed. She will be fifty feet long when fully grown. Bigger than the T-Rex."
Claire then said the investors, "Every time we unveiled a new asset, attendance has spiked. Global news coverage. Celebrity visitors. Eyes of the world."
The investors seemed convinced. Brand than asked with mild concern, "What about the issues with anti-dinosaur protesters and terrorists regarding this Indominus Rex? We know you guys barely recovered from the cyber-terrorist attack on your systems and sold off your secrets & scandals to the press four years ago, just to make InGen and Masrani Corporation look bad."
Claire somewhat expected that question to be asked and took a deep breath. "Well, if every company shut down because of the protests, the world will never have any fun. So, we will lucky to have our investors help us recover from the cyber-attack. And we are aware of those risks when the Indominus Rex becomes opened to the public." Claire replied. She still remembered how the cyber-attack on InGen and Masrani Global Corporation almost destroyed those companies financially.
After hearing what Claire said about their awareness of the anti-dinosaur protests and such, Osterly asked, "How do you protect yourselves from such protests and such?"
"Members are our security teams in our park are ex-military and SWAT from all over the world. We also have a radar that detects any ship and aircraft who approaches this island with 30 miles." Claire replied.
After hearing about the potential increase of visitors if the hybrid becomes open to the public and the protection the island has from such threats, Osterly is convinced that Verizon should sponsor the Indominus Rex. He asked Claire, "When will she be ready?"
Beamed with pride, Wu answered for her, "She already is."
Meanwhile in Main Street, crowds of people in the street leading towards the Innovation Center are going to various places in the area. Gray is enthusiastically running to the steps of the building while Zach and Zara are trailing behind him. Gray said to them while impatient, "Come on!"
"Relax." Zach said, trying to get his younger brother to slow down.
Gray was on top of the stairway as he turned and excitedly said, "Come on!"
"Dude, chill." Zach said in an uninterested tone as he and Gray opened the door to the Innovation Center.
As Gray and Zach entered the Innovation Center, Zara, trying to keep up, barely made it through the doors as they closed behind her. The announcer said, "Welcome to the Innovation Center, where technology meets prehistory. Join us on the exciting journey 65 million years into the past."
The Innovation Center was full of activity. The center of the lobby had the holographic platform that shows projections of life-size dinosaurs, which currently showing an Apatosaurus, which roars There was a statue of John Hammond at the entrance of Hammond Creation Lab. There were various activities in the lobby. Among those activities include Digging for Dinosaurs, a recreation of an paleontological dig where children use brushes to uncover dinosaur bones. There was a theater where children and their parents watched a documentary about the dinosaurs extinction. There were various exhibits and diners in the lobby and in the upper areas. The announcers in the P.A. are both either male or female in various exhibits.
Gray rushed to the Mr. DNA show, where people will be quizzed about the genetics of the dinosaurs. He pushing the button to recite the questions and said, "Cytosine, guanine, adenine and thymine. The same four things in everything that ever live."
After this was completed, Mr. DNA appeared on the screen for another visitor, "Test your knowledge."
The grumpy-looking Zach came to his little brother and said, "Hey, don't wander off, all right? Mom's not paying me for babysitting."
As he said that, the voice of Claire was heard from behind them, "Gray? Is that you?"
Gray turned his face and sees Claire on the stairway holding a phone, "Aunt Claire!"
Claire smiled as she saw Gray from the stairway while on the phone. She said on the phone while descending on the stairway to see her nephews, "Okay, yeah. No, I gonna go. My nephews are here."
As Claire hung up and made it to the lobby floor, Gray excitedly rushed to her. "Hi!" Claire replied in a overjoyed tone as Gray gave her a hug. Surprised by the sudden hug, Claire awkwardly returns the hug as the holographic platform now shown a Parasaurolophus. She laughed at that hug and said to Gray, "Oh, Oh my gosh, you're so...you're so sweet."
Claire then turns her face at Zach as Zara then joined when she fell behind. Claire said in a surprised tone, "Whoa, Zach! Last time I saw you, you we're like..." Claire let her left hand and raised it to Gray's height as she tried to remember how tall Zach was when she last saw him. Then she continued, "That must've been, what? Three, four years ago?"
"Uh, seven. Seven years. But, you know, close." Zach replied to his aunt.
"So, I see that you already got your wristbands and this is for the food." Claire handed Gray the envelope with the Jurassic World logo on it as she continued, "And Zara here is going to take great care of you until I'm done working tonight."
Upon hearing that, Zara looked uninterested. Zach was obviously a little less than interested, but Gray had a gloomy look on his face and asked with concern, "You're not coming with us?"
"Oh, um, I really wish I could, but tomorrow I can take you to the control room, show you behind the scenes and all of that. That's...That's gonna be cool, right?" Claire said to Gray. She hated to disappoint Gray with the lack of time with him and Zach, but work with the new Indominus Rex project forced her to not to spend time with them today.
Gray was disappointed upon hearing that his aunt will be too busy. Zach rolled his eye as he wasn't truly surprised. Then Claire's phone rang. So she walked back slowly, Claire said to her nephews, "Okay, so I will see you tonight at...uh...six."
"No, no, don't forget you have the..." Zara said, reminding of another appointment to deal with today.
"Right, of course. I will see you tonight at eight. What time do you go to sleep. Or, or do you go to sleep in different times?" Claire said to her nephews.
Both Zach and Gray didn't respond as Claire's phone continued to rang. So she said to them, "Okay, so have fun." Then she turned her face at Zara and said to her, "And take very good care of them."
After that, Claire answered the call. "Yeah. No, I'm here." Claire said on the phone as she walked by the holographic dinosaur.
Jurassic Park Visitor Center
Inside the Jurassic Park visitor center, many terrorists were loading up their gear for their operation. Some were removing camouflages from four SUVs with Jurassic World logos, four jeeps with Jurassic World logos and two Mercedes-Benz Unimog U 4000 trucks that has markings of Mobile Veterinarian Unit. The terrorists made the exact logos of Jurassic World on their vehicles to blend into the park. Others went to six H1 Hummers and were setting up Browning M2 machine guns on top of them.
Some of them were gathering their vests carrying ammo & magazines and putting them on. They were also loading up various assault rifles, sub-machine guns, pistols, shotguns, rocket launchers, grenades, flash grenades and grenade launchers in various tables.
Cullen was loading up IDs on her laptop computer and handing them to some of the terrorists. Torres was loading his M16A4. Some were disguised as park rangers and park employees. One of the henchman, a Chinese man name Wang, a dinosaur expert, was loading a Heckler & Koch G36C rifle. A French henchman name Moreau, who is the tracker of the group, finished loading the shells of the Mossberg 590 shotgun.
Then Sean Nolan, now older and bald, came out, carrying a miniature set of Main Street of Jurassic World. He put the set on the table and said to his goons. "Today is the day we will show the world how dinosaurs should have stayed extinct. We will show the world that Mother Nature should have been messed with when they were cloning these abominations." Then he starts the timer on the pager watch and the five minute countdown started. He then said to his goons, "Let's get to it."
Nolan then takes the Heckler & Koch HK416 rifle and walked towards the main entrance in silence. Then all the members of his group present waited for a moment. Then they started to clear out carrying everything essential to them.
Nolan went into one of the U 4000 trucks with Mobile Veterinarian Unit markings. Torres, Cullen, Wang and some of the men with them went to it as well. Many of them were armed with Heckler & Koch MP5A3 sub-machine guns, M4A1 Carbine rifles, G36C rifles and Remington Model 870 shotguns. Moreau went to one of the SUVs with two other henchmen and a henchwoman who will drive the vehicle.
The other terrorists went to H1 hummers, jeeps, SUVs and the other U 4000 truck with Mobile Veterinarian Unit markings on it, armed with various weapons. The U 4000 truck carrying Nolan, Torres, Cullen and others with them took off. The SUV with Moreau and the goons with him went to the other direction. All H1 hummers, three SUVs and two jeeps took off, following the U 4000 truck containing Nolan and the goons with him. The other U 4000 truck, two jeeps and a SUV went to follow Moreau's vehicle.
Once the vehicles left the abandoned Jurassic Park visitor center, the miniature set of Main Street and a wristwatch was still on the table. The wristwatch was getting close to reach zero. When the watch reached zero, it beeped for a few seconds. Then a tiny bomb in the miniature of Main Street blew up, destroying the miniature.
Chapter 3: Introducing the Indominus Rex
Jurassic World control room
The control room of Jurassic World was a high-tech room. There were monitors on the wall that shows security footage of the park. The center most monitor shows the map of Isla Nublar. There were numerous consoles and workstations that are facing the monitors. There was radio chatters about the Technicians work hard and diligently. Among the technicians in the control room are Lowery Cruthers, Vivian Krill and Jeffrey Porter. Lowery's workstation is covered with toy dinosaurs. Claire arrives with a cup of coffee and walked between the between the desks of Lowery & Vivian. She asked, "What's the live count?"
"Twenty-two thousand, two sixteen." Vivian replied.
Claire acknowledged what Vivian said and quickly asked, "Any incidents?"
Lowery said to his boss, "Yeah, six kids in the lost and found, uh, 28 down with heat stroke and..."
As Lowery was filling in on the incidents in the park, Claire noticed Lowery's shirt was that of the ill-fated and famous Jurassic Park and wasn't pleased to see it. "Where did you get that?" Claire asked bluntly, interrupting what he was saying to her.
Lowery looked at his boss and replied , "Oh, this. I got it from eBay. Yeah, it's pretty amazing. I got it for $150, but the mint condition goes for 300."
“"Didn't it occur to you maybe that's in poor taste?" Claire asked in a serious tone.
Lowery than admitted to his boss, "The shirt? Yeah. No, it did. I understand people died, it was terrible. But...that first park was legit. You know, I have a lot of respect. They didn't need these genetic hybrids..."
Claire sighed upon hearing Lowery said about Jurassic Park as he continued "They just needed dinosaurs, REAL dinosaurs. That's kind of enough..."
"Okay. Please, don't wear it again." Claire said to Lowery, hearing enough of his view of the Jurassic Park shirt.
"Yeah, wasn't gonna..." Lowery acknowledged as he focused on his workstation.
Deciding to change the subject, Vivian asked Claire, "Did you close the deal?"
"Looks like it. Verizon Wireless presents the Indominus Rex." Claire said proudly. She felt pleased that the Verizon representatives wanted to sponsor the Indominus Rex.
Lowery hung his head. "Ah, that was so terrible." Then he raised his head, while saying, "Why not just go the distance, Claire? Let these corporations name the dinosaurs. They've got all the ballparks. Why stop there?"
"Did they asked about the cyber attack four years ago?" Vivian asked, trying to change subjects. She also remembered the cyber attack against InGen and Masrani Corporation.
Claire sighed and replied, "Yeah, they did." Shortly after she said that, Claire noticed something on the monitors and asked while pointing her left finger on the map of the island monitor, "Why the West Plains closed?"
"Another Pachy roaming outside his zone, but he's fully sedated and ready for relocation." Vivian explained.
Lowery quietly muttered on his earlier conversation, "Pepsisaurus. Tostitodon."
"Security said the invisible fences were a no-fail. That's the second time this month." Claire said bluntly, pointing out the situation.
"Well, the Pachys short out their implants when they butt heads." Vivian stated as one the monitor screens show a sedated Pachycephalosaurus being treated by members of the ACU as their Mobile Veterinarian Unit truck was near them.
"How much longer until they get it out of there?" Claire asked bluntly, wanting the tranquilized dinosaur out of there quickly without problems.
"He just got five milligrams of Carfentanil." Vivian reminded her boss.
"Yes, he's very stoned. So why don't we show a little sympathy?" Lowery said to Claire, agreeing with Vivian.
Claire smiled at Lowery as she was amused.
"I mean, you do understand these are actual animals, right?" Lowery said to Claire about his thoughts of the dinosaurs.
Claire felt uncomfortable about her view of dinosaurs as he looked at Lowery. Instead of answering Lowery's question, she focused on his workstation and said to him, 'Clean up your work space. It's...chaotic."
"I like to think of it as a living system. Just enough stability to keep it from collapsing into anarchy." Lowery said as he moved a toy that was slightly out of place.
While that was happening, Claire nudges a trash can over with her left foot. As Lowery was reaching out for a big of chips, he accidentally knocked down a soda cup with his arm. But the cup fell into the trash can instead of the floor as Claire correctly predicted. Lowery picked up the cup. The lid was still in place and didn't spill any of his drink. Lowery looked embarrassed as he picked up his cup and put it back in his workstation as Claire was leaving the control room with her Starbucks coffee on her.
"Inbound chopper, Jurassic 1. ETA five minutes." The announcer on the P.A. said.
As Claire was walking away with her Starbucks coffee, Porter came to her and said, "The Dust Storm will be arriving around 10 minutes."
Claire looks at Porter and replied while at the elevator, "Good. We could use those medical supplies for our medical facility, as well as bags of food and such."
"Oh, I'm updating the radar so it will be offline until the update is installed." Porter said to her.
Claire turned her face at Porter. "Why?" Claire asked with some curiously as she wanted to know why Porter would update the radar which would temporarily shut it down.
Porter then thought about for a moment and then quickly clarified, "Ever since what happened to the radar two weeks ago, I thought it would best to keep it up to date for security reasons and we do not..."
"Alright, alright. I get the picture, Jeffrey. Just wait until the Dust Storm docks. Then update the radar. I don't any unauthorized ships or aircraft arriving here without detection." Claire replied in a serious tone as the elevator to the helipad arrived.
"Yes, ma'am." Porter acknowledged as he turned back to his workstation.
With that, Claire went to the elevator and the doors closed afterwards.
At the helipad, the helicopter JW001 is arriving. Claire waited by until the helicopter landed. She walked to the chopper. She got aboard and rode in the backseat. The pilot on it park owner Simon Masrani. His flight instructor was in the co-pilot seat. Masrani said as he took off his sunglasses, "Claire."
Claire was surprised that it was Masrani who was flying the helicopter. She said while putting on her seat belt. "Mr. Masrani. You're...flying."
"I got my license." Masrani stated.
His bearded flight instructor held up two fingers and said, "Two more."
Masrani then corrected Claire, "Well, two more days." Then he asked while turned his face at her, "So, how's my park doing?"
"Great." Claire replied as she started to put on her seat beat. "We're up two and a half percent from last year, a bit lower than the initial projections..."
Masrani interrupted, "No, no, no...how's it doing? Are the guests having fun? Are the animals enjoying life?"
"Well, guest satisfaction is steady, in the low nineties.” Claire answered as she finished putting her seat belt on. Then she said awkwardly, "We don't have a way to measure the animal's emotional...experience."
"Sure you do. You can see in their eyes, right?" Masrani interrupted, pointing to his eye.
"Of course." Claire replied as she smiled awkwardly.
"Okay, now show me my new dinosaur." Masrani said as Claire put her headset on.
As Masrani started to take off, Claire gasped as the helicopter awkwardly lifts up in the air. As the helicopter got wobbly, it managed to zoom off in the air.
"Got it, got it...Got it!" Masrani said, reassuring himself and the others aboard.
At Main Street, Smith sees through the binoculars on his right hand that the helicopter taking off from the helipad in the control room. He is also holding a cell phone on his left hand.
"Tell Nolan to guess who's flying the helicopter heading for the Indominus Rex padlock." Smith said on the cell phone while checking his binoculars.
The helicopter flies over the jungle.
